On Alabama's Civil Rights Trail

April 19 – 23, 2020

Tuskegee  |  Selma  |  Dexter Avenue Baptist Church  |  Montgomery

Rediscovering The Path Forward In The Heart Of Dixie

Let’s drive to Alabama, during the fullness of the spring bloom, to explore the poignant stories along Alabama’s Civil Rights Trail. We’ll spend time in Tuskegee (1 night), Montgomery (3 nights), and Selma, delving into the places and personalities that wrung the bold civil rights legislation of the mid-1960’s out of the politics of status quo. We’ll visit Martin Luther King, Jr’s first (and only) pastorate; come to terms with Montgomery’s remarkable demographic change – from one-time bastion of slavery, to one of the foremost examples of “white flight” in mid-20th century America, to a re-tooling Sun Belt city (with a past); and explore Selma’s stories and preservation.

TRIP HIGHLIGHTS:

• Tuskegee Institute – legacy-rich institute of higher learning; home of the Tuskegee Airmen

• Montgomery’s new Civil Rights museums and memorials (The Legacy Museum; The Freedom Riders Museum; The National Memorial for Peace and Justice); one-time capital of the Confederacy Selma, Alabama – layers of history, spanning early settlement to the Civil Rights; National Voting Rights Museum; architectural gems

• The intimacy of the small group:  great conversation and warmth, complemented by outstanding lodging and great local dining
